Altered Notebooks, v. 3

I made a few more altered notebooks/journals for some friends, and I thought I would share them here! Michele got hers a few days ago. I thought purple was the obvious choice given she owns Purple Onion Designs! She is such a sweet and generous friend. I used Doodlebug patterned cardstock and Doodlebug Bazzill for her notebook. Added some POD stamps, and a chipboard monogram that I made myself! I used the SU! Tab Punch and made up some dividers, too. Hugs to you, Michele!!

Next was Lisa Renea. Like Michele's, I had this idea in my head for a while! I *love* this patterned paper, Cosmo Cricket's Wanted line. It is way old news, but I just love the colors and patterns of this paper! I use SU! Chocolate Chip, Cool Caribbean, and Cranberry Crisp cardstock, and the SU! Tab punch to make dividers. On the front, the chipboard sticker says "So many cowboys, so little rope!" Too cute! Of course I distressed everything with vintage photo in, and added a bow for good measure! Love ya, LR!
I also made up a few long narrow notebooks as grocery listers. I did not add dividers or tabs, just lined the covers inside and out, and stamped the word "groceries" in black ink with SU! Tall Tales alpha. The patterned paper is DCWV stack paper, which is great to use on these notebooks, cause many of the patterns coordinate!
Have a great Tuesday, everyone! --Kerilou
